On Sunday, the Sevenoaks Suns women’s team (14-0) will travel to Glasgow’s Emirates Arena to battle the London Lions (13-0) in the finals of the Women’s British Basketball League Trophy Competition. The nationally televised match features the two league-leading teams and is expected to be played before a sold-out arena.

The Suns, thus far, have breezed to a 14-0 record in league competition. However, the Lions are the current Trophy holders and promise to be a major test. As usual, the Suns’ success has been keyed by a strong team defense. The team has, by far, the best defensive record in the WBBL, conceding an average of just 49 points per game and holding opponents to a stifling 29% from the field. The Suns are the only team in the league that keeps teams below 50 points and 30% shooting. They also lead the league in rebounding.

Offensively, team captain Cat Carr is once again the scoring leader, with 207 points. However, Suns scoring is well-distributed, with five other players contributing between 177 and 125 points to this year’s campaign. This balanced scoring has made the Suns a difficult team to defend, as it has been impossible for opponents to concentrate on stopping Carr or sharpshooting Renee Busch (177 points).

While the Suns defense has been strong, it looks to get its strongest test from a Lion’s team which boasts the high-scoring Cassie Breen and such experienced National team players as Joanne Leedham-Warner and Holly Winterburn. Keeping this offensive powerhouse under control will be a major challenge for the Suns.

The match will tip-off at 1 PM, Sunday, March 20, 2022. For those unable to make it to Glasgow, the match will be carried on Sky Sports Arena and the Sky Sports YouTube channel.
